Self Employed

As I've mentioned before I now find myself self employed. I spend my days slaving away at my home office. I find myself doing architectural design, graphic design and web design. The best part is that I find my work to be very fulfilling however the down side is that I get to handle all my own IT problems. So do the benefits outweigh the drawbacks? What are the perks of self employment you may ask? Well, here’s my top ten list of reasons:

1. Being your own boss means setting your own hours
2. Your commute consists of walking from one room to another
3. A very lax dress code (clothing optional)
4. Safer than crab fishing the Bering Sea, speaking of which you don’t miss your favorite daytime t.v. shows
5. Welcome to a world where those “questionable websites” aren’t blocked- yes I mean Facebook, of course
6. You are on a first-name basis with the mailman
7. You can listen to your music as loud as you please
8. No need to fight co-workers for fridge space just to have them eat your lunch because it’s
better than theirs
9. Very few sexual harassment issues

And last but not least…
10. There’s a pretty good chance of making Employee of the Month

Well, those are my reasons for being self employed. If I didn’t mention one that’s near and dear to your heart please post it below. I look forward to hearing from you. Now get back to work!


  1. Nicely done. The illustration is fantastic.
    I'm convinced my kids think I'm having an affair with the UPS man. I should probably get as excited to see Jason as I do the guy who brings me "all of the presents".

  2. Congrats on being "Employee of the Month"!
    Seriously, Love the new post!! Creative. ;-}
